My Finished Coloring Page – Jellyfish by Millie Marotta from Tropical Wonderland

I have spent many a night, for hours and hours (I’m retired), watching all kinds of videos on YouTube about using colored pencils. I finally finished a coloring page.

How I Got to This Point
I first focused on blending tutorials to get started. I recommend a couple of resources:

Peta Hewitt does an amazing job providing nuggets of wisdom as she narrates her coloring tutorial videos, such as this one: Jellyfish in Lost Ocean http://la-artistino.com/2016/07/17/colouring-tutorial-jellyfish-in-lost-ocean-parts-1-and-2

I then watched real-time coloring videos to learn how the techniques are applied. I am a visual learner and I learn best by example. This blog post from Peta Hewitt is a real good one where she shows how to do backgrounds using soft pastels: http://la-artistino.com/2015/11/10/lost-ocean-videos-super-smooth-pastel-background-tutorial-and-video-speed-colouring/
